HISTORY(R) UNVEILS LIMITED EDITION "IRT ICE" FIRST EVER CO-BRANDED LINE OF ICE EXCLUSIVELY FROM ARCTIC GLACIER TO CELEBRATE NEW SEASON OF "ICE ROAD TRUCKERS"

NEW SEASON AIRS ON SUNDAYS 9PM/8C

New York, June 4, 2012 - To celebrate the new season of one of its most successful series, ICE ROAD TRUCKERS (IRT), HISTORY and Arctic Glacier have partnered to introduce IRT Ice - the first ever co-branded line of ice exclusively from Arctic Glacier. The new season of ICE ROAD TRUCKERS airs on Sundays at 9pm/8c.

Through the partnership more than eight million bags of IRT ICE will be shipped to Arctic Glacier retailers nationwide. The campaign will also include point-of-sale advertising at retail locations and 18 co-branded delivery trucks in Los Angeles and New York to promote a consumer sweepstakes for a chance to win a 55-inch LED television.

HISTORY's VP Marketing Chris Meador explained, "HISTORY is excited to bring a new season of ICE ROAD TRUCKERS to fans across the country and our partnership with Arctic Glacier will enable IRT to reach millions of consumers at retail locations this summer."

"Arctic Glacier is pleased and honored to be chosen as the co-branded ice provider for the launch of the latest season of Ice Road Truckers," said Keith McMahon, President and CEO of Arctic Glacier. "The partnership provides a unique opportunity for Arctic Glacier to add an exciting and innovative new dimension to the packaged ice industry."

IRT star Hugh Rowland was in Times Square to make the first delivery of IRT ICE to the Walgreens store at 42nd and Broadway on Thursday May 31, 2012. As part of the special delivery, the Arctic Glacier special effects team turned Times Square into a winter scene, complete with an IRT Ice delivery truck, more than 20 tons of snow, an ice road and ice sculptures.

IRT Ice will be available at Arctic Glacier retailers including Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target, 7-Eleven and Safeway, among others. For more information, visit www.history.com/IRTIce.

ICE ROAD TRUCKERS is a classic story of adventure, perseverance, human ingenuity and most importantly, danger. One miscalculation of the road, bad weather or an unseen road hazard can be the difference between life and death. Even the most seasoned drivers will find themselves challenged by the conditions, isolation and lack of creature comforts. Although technology has changed how people deal with the conditions of the Arctic Circle, the people of the region cling to their deep roots and traditions of which ice road trucking has been an integral part for many generations.
